    Do you see where the FM radio option is located? I don't see it as an app or in the system app list

    I'm sure someone will figure out where the radio is eventually.

    I think they just activated the FM radio, but now we just need to download any FM radio app. I will try this later and will see what happens.

    You need to download a radio application such as Nextradio and you need your wired headphones plugged in to work as an antenna.

    ^ this. And FM radio apps, such as NextRadio, work without a data connection. After all, that's the whole point of the FM transmitter. You can always stream local radio online.

    I downloaded NextRadio free and it works very well with the headphones as your Antenna. I'm still looking for a simpler FM radio app, one that looks just like the OEM ones, just a plain tuner, but I think I'm asking too much, after a while I didn't find anything similar, so I just downloaded Nextradio.

    Thanks. The headphones as an antenna seemed silly. I thought it was bs

    That's always been the case on phones with FM Radio (unless it has a dedicated antenna). It needs something to act as an antenna, and the headphones cable is the perfect substitute on a phone.

    Is there any way around it? Just wondering if it would work without the headphones

    You could re-code the app (not sure if the 'wire' check is in the OS or the radio app, though) and make it skip it asking for the headphones, but just like an FM radio with no antenna, chances are that if you do use it like that you'll only get static.

    I've been using TuneIn Radio Pro on this phone from day one on my early delivered pre-order,which is FM radio..I was under the impression there would be an actual samsung radio app maybe..but either way great job T-Mobile on the update and the May security.
